Overview

Some Nightmares. . .

Beside each body, he leaves a simple charm bearing a woman's name. Ruth. Martha. Judith. The victims were strangers to each other, but they have been chosen with the utmost care. Each bears a striking resemblance to Kendall Shaw, a local anchorwoman. . .each brutally strangled by a madman whose obsession will never end...

Don't Fade. . .

In front of the cameras, Kendall is the picture of stylish confidence. But at night she's haunted by nightmares in which she is young, alone, and filled with fear. Are these memories--or omens? Despite warnings from Richmond Detective Jacob Warwick, Kendall can't stop investigating the recent string of murders. She knows she holds the key to catching an obsessed psychopath--if he doesn't get to her first. . .

With Daylight

The deeper Kendall and Jacob dig into the victims' backgrounds, the more terrifying the discoveries. For from the shadows of the past, a legacy of evil has resurfaced. Every murder, every moment has been leading to Kendall. And this time, nothing will stop the killer making her his final victim. . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

A taut race to identify and apprehend the person who is killing look-alikes of popular Richmond, Va., TV anchorwoman Kendall Shaw is enhanced with a dash of sexual tension plus generous handfuls of emotional baggage. After two women who resemble Kendall are found dead, it's clear that sooner or later the killer will directly target the aggressive newscaster. As homicide detective Jacob Warwick, who saw Kendall at her most vulnerable after rescuing her from an insane kidnapper, struggles with his attraction to her, he also needs to simultaneously protect her and keep her sharp reporter's instincts away from police business, all while she denies that she's in danger or needs any help. With a gift for artful obfuscation, Burton juggles a budding romance and two very plausible might-be perpetrators right up to the tense conclusion. (Nov.)

    Very twisted

    Lots of twists & turns...the storyline will continue to surprise you. One of the few books that had me stumped as to the killers motive & who the real killer was until the author began to reveal the details at the very end...kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time! Def a fav from this author.

    Mary Burton is up and coming

    She may not be as famous as another Mary, but I find Ms. Burton to be very good at keeping up the pace. Ms. Burton is a ew author to me, but having to wait so long for the other Mary, I stumbled across Ms. Burton, and purchased 3 books at once, and read them all in one week. I found Dead Ringer to be suspensful with an interesting kick at the end. Pick it up for a weekend escape, I bet you'll love it and come back for more.

    ¿A Mystery to Not Pass Up¿

    Mary Burton¿s book I¿m Watching You was good, but it is not close to being as good as Dead Ringer. She has developed the characters into tangible personalities. The characters are lovable, with the exception of 3 creeps. Kendall Shaw is a pain-in-the-butt reporter that you have to admire. She is in love with a tough-as-nails policeman. Will they be able to make a relationship? Also, why is the serial killer focusing on girls who look like Kendall? Of course, there is Nicole who is trying to figure out who is the best adoptive family for her child. Is it possible that she will find love, even though she has swollen ankles and a swollen belly? I loved this book. Burton has taken great strides toward becoming a great like the legendary Mary Higgins Clark. I look forward to her next creation. I hope she makes Nicole the main character of her next book.
